  • another snowflake puzzle...painted

    This time I decided to try painting the puzzle to make it more challenging. It took me way longer to paint this than it did to cut it...about two hours. I can cut one in 30 or 40 minutes.
    What do you think??

      I think it's a great achievement and it looks great, but I'm stumped as to what the pieces look like. Are they all different?

        That is a great job. Love the paint, I may have to copy your idea.

        It's all fun

          Yes Carter, they are all different. You can see the pattern if you go to the home page and click on the article about the contrasting snowflake puzzle. It said with the center piece in place there are 161 solutions, without it, more than a thousand possibilities ( I think that's right). SO I glued the center piece in place as the article suggested. You can see my other puzzle in an eariler thread. I just wood burned that one so that the wood grain was still visible to use as a clue. With this one painted, it will be much more difficult.

              Man what a puzzle!

              I don't think I could get through that with out losing my mind....or maybe you need to be a little out of your mind to get through it.

              Good job.

                He went to his meeting last night and it was a tool swap. He came home with - Jet slow water grinder (?), new never used air brush, and a never used spray tent that exhausts to the outside and an extra tent. All for the grand total of $35....

                Very nice. I thought it was carved.

                For you and hotshot , remember to hide notes, chicken bones or beer cans in the stud cavities for the next remodeler to find.

                I am partial to the folks who hide plastic skeletons in dead spaces under stairs, etc.

                by Ennobee
                My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

                Hi Jim.
                glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...
